Lisa Norato writes "Love in a Victorian"

I loved reading this story...Jamie is the daughter of the owner of Kearly Restoration, Her dad has taught her well and she does great work with these type houses,so much so that when an old house in Elm's Corner came up for sale she was ready to make it hers and restore it to its former glory.
Unbeknownst to her the grandson of the estate owner had now decided he wanted to come home and have the house restored himself and he makes an offer

LOVE IN A VICTORIAN is classic Norato with warm, wonderful characters and a charming setting. I read the book in one sitting because I couldn't put it down! I was pulled into the story and felt like I was there, and because I'm an animal lover, the cat was the icing on the cake. This is a well-written, compelling, fast read, and I highly recommend it! I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I debated between three and four stars so I'll leave it at four. It was a nice read on a sick day, but not my favorite. It was very Hallmark like, predictable plot, sweet (and rather shallow) romance, and seasonal setting.

Love in a Victorian is a deliciously sweet story. Right from the start I was pulled into this unique historic village of Elm’s Corner filled with the most delightful characters. I found myself laughing and wondering and even getting a little hungry. I loved every bit of this story.

Lisa Norato is a great story-teller. Her descriptive style of writing lets you clearly picture the story she is telling. I am so happy that there will be more books in this series. I can’t wait to read them

Don't pass by this book this Fall!

What a delightful book. If you could put all the fabulous sights, smells, and tastes of Fall into a book it would have to be this book. I don't think I have ever read a book that actually made me feel like I was actually there. Great descriptions, great characters, and great conversations. I will read this book every fall!

...and Italian family

A great read on family, renovation, and romance. You'll be dying for Italian food when you're finished reading. It always amazes me the details that go into good book.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a slight My Big Fat Greek Wedding vibe :) Can't wait to read more from Lisa Norato!
